The Ark began in 2007. It is a Sunday School and creche for children from babies to 12 years of age. But it is more than just a Sunday school and reaches children who don't necessarily come to church, through summer clubs, Easter play days, Light Party at Halloween, and an all inclusive Nativity and Christmas activities.
It is run by Lesley and her team who have a wealth of experience and enthusiasm between them and who love to teach children more about God's love,through stories, crafts, and games.
Please feel free to join us on a Sunday morning or keep an eye on the noticeboard outside church for any upcoming events.
The Youth of Promise is a small group of young Christians who study the Bible with fun quizzes and other fun activities which are related to faith and their christian lives. We sometimes have interesting conversations with our leaders to enrich our knowledge about christianity.
We take part in the monthly Deeper sessions; we act out some nativity plays every year and we host the famous Light Party every halloween which gathers a lot of people around Newark and we can't wait to see you there.
Our motto is taken from 1st Timothy 4:12, "Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity", and 1st Peter 2:9, "But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light."
The churches across Newark also hold a Youth event, known as Deeper, which typically meets each month in various church building across the town. It is aimed at those of secondary school age, and year 6 students are also welcome.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, Deeper met on 20th February 2021 online.
When Deeper meets again we will publish details here.
Stay safe and see you soon.
